iShares TIPS Bond Message Board

    (tip) barclays tips bond fund "dividend history"-no longer paying monthly : on 12/27/2011 the (tip) barclays tips bond fund stopped paying the usual dependable monthly dividend. Since this date, has turned to a tapering off and has missed several months of their usual dividend payments. so in other words, none of the current owners of "tip", the etf, have absolutely nothing to look forward to in terms of receiving a monthly stream of dividend income from "tip". at first, tip dividends were cut in half and only played 5 out of 10 months in 2012, but now it's confirmed that there will no longer be a "monthly dividend" to look forward. So those owning or thinking about buying this etf (tip), should look at agg, tlh, mbb, or any number of treasury bond or mortgage backed securities etfs that can be viewed from doing a google search of "etf list". i like using investipedia's etf list becasue they have a "bond etf" optional view to just view bond related etfs. hope this helps. please don't looke at yahoo finance's dividend yield or income yield data on their front pages for each etf when brousing etf's on yahoo finance, this is wrong and misleading data and often gives an old or outdated quote for yield.
